RITH'S MISSION IS THE FIRST COMMANDMENT
--TO MOVE GOD'S HEART
AND THEN CHANGE
A History of God's Intentionality
Pastor Glenn Hubbart began to observe many sincere believers “burning out” in ministry, because they were not taking the time to cultivate holy intimacy with Jesus as a major emphasis in their life.
During this time, the Lord began to stir Glenn’s heart to plant a church that would put the Great Commandment in first place. Pastor Glenn and Suzanne prayed, “Lord, if we’re supposed to plant a church, would you speak to someone like Paul Cain or Larry Randolph”-- two men who had national reputations for being able to move in prophetic ministry
Within 10 days, Larry Randolph, whom Glenn had only met one time a year previous, called Glenn’s pastor and said the Lord showed him that Glenn was supposed to plant a church!
With the blessing of the east Texas church and its leaders, Glenn and his family were sent out to plant River In The Hills in Austin.
After meeting in homes and temporary facilities in the Lakeway area, River In The Hills moved to their current location on Highway 620.
Who We Are
River in the Hills Church was birthed during the days of a worldwide revival in the 1990's known as the “Renewal Movement." During the renewal, many worship songs were written that depicted the Spirit of God moving through specific regions or church congregations as a “river of God."
Daniel describes a river of fire coming from God’s throne, Psalms describes a river of gladness, and Ezekiel describes a river of life. So, we wanted to give the church a name that describes various ways the Holy Spirit moves among God’s people. Since we are located at the edge of the hill country of Texas, it seemed to be a good fit, both biblically and geographically!
We welcome you to jump in the river with us!
